How to Make Lips Pink and Healthy

10. Use natural plant dyes 

If you’re going after an even lip color that’s slightly more reddish than your skin tone, natural plant dyes are a good place to start. They also won’t irritate or dry out lips like heavy lipsticks. Raspberry juice or pomegranate juice applied directly to your lips can temporarily stain your lips a pinkish color.

11. Limit exposure to toxins 

Polluted air, smoke, and chemicals can prematurely age skin, making lips look dark or wrinkled. Habits like smoking can aggravate this effect and give your lip color a faded appearance.

Avoiding cigarettes and secondhand smoke can improve the way your lips look. Wearing a scarf to cover lips may also protect them from overexposure.

12. Take off your makeup before bed 

Sleeping in your makeup isn’t good for your skin, and your lips are no exception. Even if there’s no visible lipstick or product on your lips at the end of the day, give them a gentle swipe with a makeup-removing wipe before you hit the pillow.

13. Try peppermint oil to boost circulation 

Using peppermint oil on your lips may boost circulation to the area. It also provides a cooling sensation that can soothe lips that feel dry.

Mixing peppermint oil with a carrier oil, such as almond oil or coconut oil, makes for a luxurious DIY lip balm that you can reapply throughout the day.

14. Always prep before using lipstick 

Even when you’re using lip color products that aim to minimize skin damage, it’s still a good idea to coat your lips with a primer to stop them from getting dried out before you put on lipstick.

Use a cotton swab or lip brush to prime lips with coconut oil or almond oil. Let it fully soak in before you perfect your pout with a swipe of your favorite lip stain.

The bottom line 

Remember that different skin tones will look better with different lip colors. Don’t be discouraged if your lips don’t look exactly like your favorite celebrities or the product ads you see in magazines. Aiming for lips that are healthy, hydrated, and smooth should be your goal with these and any other home remedy for your lips.
